Hey now! We're screwed up?

You've got to be kidding.

Where else can you come to find amazing insights regarding the most significant military events of the 20th century?

Where else can you come to find heart warming stories of personal stife and success?

Where else can you come to find a bunch of old farts and youngsters going at it like no body's business?

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a more diverse and informed and interactive disfunctional family.

As just one example, following up on NC's idea, I can just picture us at the bar following our reenactment of Stalingrad. There's Grendel, pissing off the red-neck locals. We all know it's going to get ugly. He doesn't want to, it's the last thing he would consider doing under any other circumstances, but there's Earl, coming from out of nowhere to deck the burly neanderthal that was about to put Grendel in a headlock.

Sure, I'm dreaming, but I can just see it...

Family is family. Sure we fight, sure we argue, but there's something here that binds us.

They call that binding stuff "cheese."

The rest is just good old Grateful Dead.

If 'tis cheese, then that makes this whole Forum like one big Pizza Pie...an analogy I like! ;-)

I like that image, too. Reminds me of a movie, but i'm forgetting which one.

It's also sorta like what Otter says in "Animal House":

"Hey--he can't do that to our pledges...only WE can do that to our pledges!"

Glad that didn't offend. I know folks think that I am as sappy as can be, a regular pollyanna, but I do enjoy the majority of folks here, and find that though most all of us (well, okay, except for Ashes) can get down right cranky and uncivil in our thread battles, it generally works itself out, and many that have had extremely heated interactions often find a small bit of common ground...I know that I often learn something in the end by following both sides. Sure, there's a lot of hot air many times, but still...the "family" analogy fits pretty well.

I know that my wife and I have family members we won't talk to for another few days til they get over Tuesday!

Ha! Great one. Keep your head up, and eye on the rim, at least according to this photo...

Cool.

Nothing like a good rim job.
